  1. After killing a forest of trees I'm finally done with the planking. It got a bit easier as I went along. I still have a lot to learn as you can see by the wood filler. I planned on painting the hull anyway so I don't mind that it's not perfect. A lot of sanding still left to be done but that's the fun part. I get to take out my frustrations with a sanding block. Any tips and comments would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Thanks for the warm welcome. I have been reading some of the build logs which should make this build a bit easier. I removed the strongback yesterday to fix the frames as Arthur Wayne suggested and lo and behold frames 5 and 7 straightened out. After I fix the others I think I'll go with supports like he used.
  3. You are right Arthur, they were off I'll reposition them before I start planking. Thanks for the extra set of eyes.
  4. Well I was finally able to start my build. I muddled my way through the bulkheads and fairing with only one mishap. I broke frame 3 while sanding. A little too aggressive. CA to the rescue and all is well. Next up planking.
  5. I am new to building wooden ship models. I built a lot of plastic ones growing up but nothing recently. I purchased the Armed Longboat kit because I thought it would be a good model to cut my teeth on. I'll be following along with your build as I progress on mine. I also plan on starting a build log here the advice is great. Keep up the good work.
  6. Hello to all. I joined back in May but have been so busy with work that my introduction is now coming. I have built a lot of plastic models in the past and decided to try my hand at wooden ships. I find them fascinating. I live in Hollywood, Florida and recently purchased the 18th century Armed Longboat by Model Shipways. I hope to be starting a build log here soon and I will need all the help I can get.
